One Lovely Blog award

Hello!
So I have been nominated by myglitteryobsessions for the one lovely blog award!
 
The idea is that you state seven random facts about yourself and then nominate 15 other blogs!

Facts:

1) I own almost every fiction Micheal Criction book that was written under Micheal Criction, (instead of a pen name/other name)

2) I am currently working on a Doctor Who puzzle, it is currently outsmarting me.

3) My favorite nail polish is A England St. George

4) On my desk there is a Flip Flop, it makes me happy to see his little leaf arms wiggle! (or flip flap as it says on the plant, but Thinkgeek.com sells them as Flip Flop so I am not sure who to believe!)

5) Next semester I am in three science based classes, I can only hope I get to wear one of those awesome white coats!

6)  I receive two beauty boxes/bags a month, Glymm and Luxe. (Although now Luxe is changing into a seasonal product)

7) The library is currently holding "Drawing on the Right side on the Brain" for me, this is the second time I have put it on hold, the first time I miscalculated when to pick it up, so when I went to get it, it had already been taken out! So this time I am going to make sure to get it today! :)

Okay, now onto the 15 blogs! Most of these blogs are pretty famous so you've probably heard of a couple of them. They are not all beauty, most of them are, however the last two are not.

Skin Care

Hello!
So, this is more of a celebration blog update for me, because it involves my skin. I have always had poor skin, it was prone to break out, sometimes worst than others, but there would always be at least a couple of spots somewhere along the line. As you can imagine a lot of money went into skin care products as well as cover up. I've used a lot of different concealers with different varies of working. However after probably 6 years, I am sitting here with the best skin I've ever had and I like to think it's because of my skin rountine, although I can't be sure, however here it is anyways!


Nightly:

Step 1: I wash off my make up with Balea three in one cleaning cloths for all skin types

Step 2: I use my skin sonic cleaning brush and I put on Neutrogena's Deep cleaning facial normal to oily.

Step 3: I put on Body shop tea tree skin cleaning toner suitable for blemished skin on a cotton pad.

Step 4: Within the last couple of days I have been using the Vitamin & Sea's Perfect Skin Solution on a damp cloth that I got in my glymm bag.

Step 5: Then I put on Sephora's Instant moisturizer,

Step 6:  Finish up with Clean and Clear persa-gel 5 acne medication on any spots.

Every other to every 3rd day:

Step 1: Put on Clark's Botanical radiance mask or Freeman's feeling beautiful Clay avocado and Oatmeal mask.

 Before I was using masks from shoppers, although I now I am using Freeman's feeling Beautiful facial Clay mask avocado and Oatmeal, this is just a cheap mask, about three dollars from Walmart, but it seems to help, although I have to use moisturize as it dry my skin. The other one I have been using from my glymm bag is Clark's Botanical intense radiance mask. I like this one a lot, but the full size is expensive, so I probably will be looking for a cheaper alternative, I am thinking the tea tree mask from the Body shop.

Weekly:

Step 1:   Clean and Clear morning burst purifying facial scrub  gently exfoliates oxygen infusing formula.

I tried to use this daily at first, but it was too harsh for my face, and after a couple days of that my skin turned red and sore, so I stopped that but continued everything else and my skin was fine. So now I use this once a week, or once in two weeks just for something extra for my skin.

That's my current skin routine, I have been adoring it so far! Thanks for reading!

Lip products part three, Lipstick

Hello!
So before I start this post on finishing up my review of my lip products I thought I would mention that I have nail polishes heading my way -- quite a few actually. I decided to do the Julep for a penny deal, and while I am super excited to see my Julep, it is too expensive for me to do monthly! (As I also get the Glymm box, as well as the Luxe box!) I also ordered four nail polish, so between the two of them I should have about seven new nail polishes in the mail! Yay! As well as my Glymm box! Now, onto the post!

Lipsticks:

Ultra Rich Colour- U13 Sparkling Warm Rose - Avon
 This lipstick is actually very pretty, I quite like the colour of it, however it is a bit sheer, however it layers fairly well. This wears fairly well, but definitely will have to be reapplied. Also, at least the lipstick I have has a strong scent to it, which I do not like.

Colour: 3.5/5
Packaging: 3/5
Feels on the Lips: 3.5/5
Lasting power:  3
Overall: 3/5

Lip Kiss Crayon Gloss- Rouge Flamenco- Lise Watier
I got this in my Glymm box and to be honest I have no use it very much, although I probably should! It is a very pretty of red with a hint of orange! The reason I have not used it much is probably because I am a bit clumsy so putting the lid on this product I have clipped/chipped/broken off some of the product! It's so creamy that the rest of the product stays in position but with a chunk out of it!
This product would be much better for me if it was just in a tube of lipstick. That said it is a pretty colour and it seems not to fade too much while I am wearing it.

Colour: 4.5/5
Packaging: 2/5
Feels on the Lips: 4/5
Lasting Power: 3.5/5
Overall: 4.5/5
 
Lip Smacking Fun Colours - NYX-623- Heather
This I also in I think my Luxe box, this lipstick is good, however I tend to lend towards either pinks or reds, and this a more purpley colour, at least to me, so I do not wear it very often.Although I do not mind
Colour: 3/5
Packaging: 3/5
Feels on the Lips: 4/5
Lasting Power: 2.5/5
Overall: 3.0/5

 Lip Smacking Fun Colours  - NYX -634- Louisanna
I love the colour of this it is a wearable pink, not too bright but definitely enough colour that it is a staple in my make up bag! I find that I have to reapply this lipstick pretty often, so it isn't exactly long lasting, but I do think the colour makes up for it!

Colour: 5/5
Packaging: 3/5
Feels on the Lips: 4/5
Lasting Power: 2.5/5
Overall: 4/5

So that is all the lipstick that  I own! It is a lot less than the lip gloss and a lot less than the lip balms (I also just picked up the EOS I love it!) as I tend to use lip balms whenever I am at home and I use mostly lip glosses when I am out, however I do use lipsticks sometimes. These are all my lip products!
